Dana Point Wedding, Part Two | Ben and Laura
A deep, overwhelming love between two hearts, overlooking a vast, deep blue ocean… friends, we are deeply and madly in love with Ben and Laura’s stunning Dana Point wedding!
Their breathtaking ceremony at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort overlooked the ocean they both find such peace and meaning in, and Ben and Laura really did savor Every. Single. Moment.
In between their ‘I do’s’ and their lovely reception, we snuck away for a moment to breathe it all in. They really let it all sink in… and boy-oh-boy, do we adore the beautifully classic portraits captured in those moments! And just before rejoining their guests, Ben and Laura started off the celebration with a private toast to their new adventure as husband and wife.
They were invited into a lovely, warm reception – designed to perfection by one of our absolute favorites in the industry, Susanne Duffy of Crown Weddings. It was a romantic collection of of fresh, lush florals by Jennifer Cole, an elegant (and melt-in-your-mouth delicious) cake created by It’s All About the Cake, plus a bit of golden sparkle, and voilá! Such beautiful magic!
Our hearts were oh-so-HAPPY this whole day – it truly was #blissonthecliffs!
Laura and Ben: Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for being so stinkin’ wonderful! We felt truly honored to walk through the day with you, and we left with insanely happy hearts. Marriage will be a beautiful adventure for you – we simply cannot wait to see where it takes you. We love you two soooo much!
